    UConn needs to align itself with good schools ASAP. A couple decades from now, a few of the schools we are aligned with won't even exist.

    Winter is coming, and most all of these schools know it. Only the privates with big endowments will survive, and only the publics with a research mission. The others will either disappear or become local colleges.

    "Editorial just made the argument to discontinue football as it costs more than it brings in. Since it is the most expensive sport in the department, discontinuing it would free up more funds for other sports that are far less expensive. "

    Uh, do you think you might want to consider the revenue part of the equation as well chief?
